Premium 100% Softwood Pellets

Curran softwood is an optimal wood pellet. When pelletized, the difference between softwood and hardwood fiber is minimal. The density of the pellet makes a bigger difference than the species of wood. All of our tests have shown the softwood to have the lowest ash and moisture and the highest BTU making it a Super Premium Pellet. Our 100% Softwood Super Premium Pellets meet or exceed the PFI* Fuel Grade Requirements

    Running a new Harman P43, installed Dec 2013.

    We got a free ton of Currans Softwoods with our stove purchase. We also have 2 tons of Greene Team hardwood we purchased.
    The Currans don't burn as hot as the GT but do give decent heat, much less ash than the GT and it is light brown colored (instead of the black GT produces).
    We will buy more for next season (along with more GT), probably use the Currans Nov-Dec & March-April with the GT for the late Dec-Feb colder season.

    Quadrafire Castille Insert with OAK. Manufactured in 2011. These are the best pellets I have burned in my Quad.
    If you are a Harmon or other stove owner. This review will not apply to you.
    After trying green supreme mix, dry creek, curran hardwood, these Curran softies are the hottest with an output temp at baffle of 230 degrees compared to the barely 200 degree measurement with any hardwood and the 215 degree measurement with the blends out there.
    I have only burned a several bags of hardwood, mostly free from coworkers and dealers trying to sell me some. My stove made horrible noises trying to suck air. My conclusion is that any hardwood pellet in my stove burns horrible with very large clinkers that would eventually starve the stove from oxygen. The Curran mixed I religiously burned for two winters in my stove heated our house fine. Few clinkers after 24 hours but nothing to worry about. The biggest annoyance about the Curran blend was the amount of soft fly ash that HAD to be taken care of every 24 hours of it would pile high in the stove. THis abundance of fly ash would accumulate in the baffles, combustion blower area, behind the plates. It was everywhere. I tried my best to stay on top of it. Bottom line, I was stove whipped by the curran blends.
    Switched to the Curran softies this winter. Very hot, burn clean with no fly ash accumulation in baffles, combustion blower area. Clean Clean Clean. I went from vacuuming fly ash daily to once every 4 days. The clinkers are acceptable, I pull the fire pot trap door once a day.
    Bottom line, the best pellet I have ever burned in my stove. I would drive a long way to get these just to not be stove whipped and for the mere heat output.

    In summary, the best pellets are softwood for this stove followed by blend. and the worst being hardwood. I hope this review helps those out there with a Quad Castille or Santa Fe (same internals). Tim

    Burn very hot with very little ash, super for use in boilers, and furnaces. I would recommend turning combustion air up a bit though as they tend to throw more soot than the mixed or hardwood pellets.

    Where can I find these pellets near Salem New Hampshire?

    I have been burning Curran mixed pellets since the new Harmon P-43 stove went in on Oct. 1, 2102.

    The direct factory price is $4.60 per 40 Lb. bag yet Home Depot in Massena now carries Curran mixed wood pellets at $4.18 a bag.

    Seems the factory direct price to the public went up this Summer.

    have been using locally made curran pellets for a few years, very happy with the quality and consistency of these. They burn very well and produce little ash content. Been using them in a Harmon p48 and a quadra fire classic bay 1200.
